Ritchie's has lovely salads. I like the ensalada roja with apples, strawberries, nuts and reduced balsamic. Also a favorite the spinach salad with peaches and cranberries. My husband likes their breakfasts. Their hash browns are crispy and spiced well. They have sandwiches and hamburgers. The owners are Patricia and Luis; a sweet, friendly couple. Their prices are very reasonable and the restaurant is right across the street from the plaza on Colon. I recommend it highly.

Richie88 is located in the heart of Ajijic, steps away from the Village Plaza. A small friendly coffee shop with a selection of salads, sandwiches, burgers and such and a nice breakfast menu. We have visited Richie88 a number of times and were always very pleased with the quality of food and the friendly service by the owners Patricia and Louis. All the salads we tried are outstanding as is the selection of sandwiches. The home made soups are delightful.
The court yard patio is very cozy, away from the traffic noise. A selection of coffee's, tea's soft drinks, beer en wine is available.
They only serve breakfast and lunch from 9 am - 4 pm from Tuesday through Saturday.
We highly recommend to try this hidden treasure, a great place to meet your friends or just to relax and enjoy a nice meal.

Nice location near the Ajijic square. Such a friendly welcome by the owners Luis and Patricia. Escorted to a nice courtyard with soft music playing. The husband had the hamburger special with a salad and a tasty homemade dressing. Being a hot day I decided on the tortilla soup. One of the best tortilla soups I have had and I have had numerous ones all over Mexico.The food was well made and nicely presented. We had a perfect cappuccino after lunch and a homemade cookie and biscotti. Will for sure return to this nice spot. They offer breakfast and lunch. Cheers and happy eats.

Many people rave about it, but not my place. Went once at New Years Eve. Was very noisy. Food so-so and overpriced. Have not been back.

12 women went to Ritchie 88, on Colon in Ajijic, between the main street and the plaza.
Every lady raved about their lunch,
ranging from hamburgers, salads, to full lunches. the outdoor garden was quiet & private.
I had the Red Salad with apple, strawberries, favours that come together with a home made dressing.
service was great and each plate looked professional and dishes are well worth the trip.
I have planned another visit with friends to this delightful restaurant.
a bonus is the family speaks english.
